Toronto’s Riot Fest will take place on September 6th-7th at Downsview Park.

In my mind, there isn’t a type of band like The Replacements in this lineup; it’s still a decent one if you want to trek up to Canada. Can there be a festival where Flaming Lips and The National aren’t playing it? But would I go and cover it if I lived in Toronto, yeah probably.
